More About the Author

Her life may appear to be a wild ride but just below the surface it is clear, Zoe Nicholson has never take her eyes off of the prize, equality. From Civil Rights in the 60's, lesbian rights and CA Prop 6 in the 70's, feminism in the 80's ~ Marching On to Pennsylvania Ave for LGBT rights on October 11, 2009 was just another pilgrimage on her path. With a BA in Religion and MA in Ethics, Zoe has taught school, opened a bookstore, worked in hi-tech on Wall street, and written three books, working on her fourth. She is the founder of ERA Once and For All, a life long member of NOW, NWPC, Veteran Feminists of America and outspoken voice for LGBTQAI rights. Her heroes are Gandhi, Alice Paul and the activists she has met along the way. On any given day you can hear her, "I have been straight, gay, lesbian and bi; I have had an abortion and fasted for the ERA. I hang out at the intersection of feminism and equality. For me, there is no place else to be." You can find her on any of her 7 websites, 4 facebook pages, 2 twitter accounts and her youtube channel at onlinewithzoe

Format: Paperback
The Hungry Heart by Zoe Ann Nicholson, an account of one woman who traveled to Illinois in 1982 to join a small group of women fasting for justice, for ratification of the Equal Rights Amendment. It is a poignant story of women's strength and endurance in the saga of the hundreds of thousands who struggled, starved, and died for equal rights for men and women in the US Constitution. As it is now 22 years later and we only need 3 more states--I am spearheading Florida's ratification and there are other states with ERA bills, this book inspired me to keep forging on.

I needed this. YOU need this. (And Amazon is unique in that it doesn't apparently have a book category 'Women's Issues' !!!!!!!!!!!!!!! WHAAAAAT?

Sandy Oestreich, ERA Inc (Florida), representing 342 organizations, 290 000 supporters, an ERA Action Team in every major FL city and all of Florida's County Commissions endorsing the ERA plus several newspapers and 88% of the voting public-men and women.

Format: Paperback
The Hungry Heart: A Woman's Fast For Justice is the personal story of Zoe Ann Nicholson. Twenty-two years after the fact, she speaks of the summer of 1982 when she joined six women in a fast to support the Equal Rights Amendment. Traveling to Illinois to gather support for ratification of the ERA, her firsthand experiences with the U.S. women's movement, the NOW leadership, and the legislators of the day are put forth in sweeping, unforgettable, personal terms, taken from own journal of her experience. For over thirty days, she subsisted on nothing but water, putting her body on the line for the sake of her beliefs. The experience transformed her, teaching her more about what she could live with and live without. Her revelations and message of strength and self-respect unfold clearly within the pages.

I cannot believe that more than 30 years after these battles were fought, we are farther behind now than we were then. Between these pages are all the insidious attacks by the media, the right wing, the men in power and everyone who fears giving women equal opportunities -- but the amazing thing about this book is it shows the strength of women to endure it and fight on. We cannot let ourselves keep getting railroaded like this. Every girl in America should aspire to be like Zoe Nicholson, not Kim Kardashian. If you need to see real proof of how far we need to go, read this book. Then get mad.
